space plans - we'reearthlings.let'sblowupearththings [kpu067]
We're taking a big leap forward today into a slightly new and different realm of sound for Kikapu, with the debut release from Nashville's favorite legolomaniacs space plans. The band consists of three professional studio-geeks and knob-twiddlers, those being Kyleen King, Dave Jones, and Brion Bergstrom; and all three of them basically handle all of the different elements herein, whether they be guitar, bass, drums, synths, or vocals.

To be honest, this EP is just a straight-up release of psychedelic pop-rock and spacey instrumentals...nothing more, nothing less. So the point is: this is not an electronic album whatsoever, it's just the rock, and it's an incredibly superb collection of said rock. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll nod your head in approval. Enjoy :)

Unique tracks, with some technical shortcomings
Many musical ideas here - some serious, some whimsical. Great change of pace and style from the usually laptop-centric netlabel fare. More please?
Highlights are "Burn yr bridges" (with vocals) and "Karmelsutra" (without).
Unfortunately the mastering is not very convincing and the vocals sound muddy.
